Council’s investment in drone technology allows greater operational insight and responsiveness, as drones are a practical tool that allow easier access to valuable data, such as aerial images and progression mapping.
Currently, drones can only be operated in Council parks with explicit consent. Council recently launched a six-month trial for use of drones and other remotely piloted aircraft weighing up to 2kgs in ten parks across the city.
Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has advised that Brisbane is the first Council is Australia to undertake designated areas in parks for drone usage.
